New Quilt Patterns!

Posted on May 12th, by Amy in finished quilt, My Fabric, pattern. 86 comments

It feels like it’s been a marathon of sewing for the last two months, but I’m excited to finally share my new patterns with you before I head off to Market!

I made these in my new fabric line – Modern Neutrals, which will be in stores in October 2014, until then – be creative! I had some help getting everything done from Mary, Melissa, Trish and Vicki – thank you ladies, I would be less sane without your help. ;)

I have patterns available for pre-order, or PDF patterns ready to go! Follow the links for details :

Posted on May 9th, by Amy in Featured Quilter. 3 comments

Hi friends! I hope you are ready for the next installment of the Festival! I’ve spent most of the last few days working on all my posts, hoping that everything goes smoothly while I’m at Market. There’s just one week left before it begins! You will have a week to enter your quilts before the linky’s close and voting starts – there’s a countdown on the bottom of all of the linky’s so you can see how much time is left.  Make sure to get some beautiful photos to share with us, and get your post together :)

Today’s featured quilter is Brooke, from Putter Putter Stitch! Brooke always seems to be working on another great quilt; I hope you enjoy getting to know her better —
